About the Training Races:
In addition to five (5) Westhampton Yacht Squadron (WYS) Summer Series and Labor Day Races (see WYS Summer Series & Labor Day Races), this summer there will be eight (8) Summer Training Race days on Saturday mornings with the goal of providing more sailboat racing for both inexperienced and experienced WYS racing sailors in a non-regatta environment. New/inexperienced sailors can participate in and learn about racing and race management while racing with and against more experienced sailors who are practicing and honing their racing skills. New race support volunteers will work with race officers on the Race Committee Boat or support/safety boats.
These training races are not a “learn to sail program,” but a “learn to race program.” Youth learn sailing at WYS summer lessons. Adults interested in learning to sail should register for Tuesday evening Adult Lessons, the Wednesday evening Adult Sailing Clinic or contact one of our sailing instructors for private lessons. See Sailing Lessons for information.
The eight (8) training race days are scheduled for the following Saturday mornings:
June - 3, 10, 17 (Note – June 24 is WYS Summer Series #1)
July - 1, 14, 22 (Note – July 8 and 29 are WYS Summer Series #2 and #3)
August - 5, 19 (Note – August 12 and 26 are WYS Summer Series #4 and #5)
